This is the fourth in a series of walks organised with the Two Moors Way Association, taking walkers along this long distance route. The plan is to complete the whole of Devon’s Coast-to-Coast route in a series of group walks, spread over a number of years! This section of the walk is from Rushford Bridge (Chagford) to Clannaborough Barton (to be confirmed). Moderate, though at c16 miles walkers need stamina to complete it.Walkers who don’t want to do the whole of this section can still be part of this event by following the shorter route below.
7 miles / 11.3 km
This is a shorter section of the Two Moors Way for those who do not want to walk the whole of stage 4.
